Jazz up the Carrot
Carrot and coriander is a classic combination we all know, especially in soup, but why not experiment with some different ways to jazz up your carrots? Try adding fresh flavours such as mint or ginger.
Caraway seeds Toss some cooked carrots in butter and sprinkle with caraway seeds.
Citrus Not only are oranges the perfect colour match for carrots, but the citrus really brings out the sweet flavour of carrots. Simmer carrots until tender then drain and toss in a pan with some butter, sugar to taste and lemon or orange juice for delicious citrus glazed carrots. Or dress grated raw carrot with olive oil and either orange or lemon juice, top with a few toasted almonds for a simple side salad.
Dill A delicious seasoning for cooked carrots.
Ginger Add some fresh ginger to carrots when juicing for a great cleansing juice with a kick. Or try cooking the carrots in a little ginger beer for an unusual twist on boiled carrots.
Honey A delicious and healthy glaze for carrots.
Maple Syrup Drizzle over roasted carrots five minutes before the end of their cooking time to accentuate their sweetness.
Mint Add to carrots in salad or in a chilled soup for a refreshing taste.
Some other delicious combinations are honey and balsamic vinegar, which can be used to glaze carrots before cooking.
Honey and thyme is great with cooked carrots too!
